Parting is such sweet sorrow… Westward Ho

Cultural Dictionary

Parting is such sweet sorrow

A line from the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare; Juliet is saying good night to Romeo. Their sorrowful parting is also “sweet” because it makes them think about the next time they will see each other.
